Do you complete my tax return while you are at my house or do you pick up the documents and return again?

Either way. we can complete the return at your home using a laptop and portable printer. Some of our clients prefer a pick-up, drop-off service. If your taxes are complicated or involved we prefer to do them at our home office and follow-up when they are completed.

Do you set a firm price for your service before completing my taxes?

Yes, and we understand why you would ask. Too many companies will quote you a low price to get the appointment and then surprise you with a larger bill when the tax return is complete. In most cases, you have been in their office for over an hour and they hope you are just too tired to argue. There will be no surprises with the cost of our service. It's our job to estimate the cost of service, then stick to the agreement.

How do you charge so much less than the big chains?

We do not have the rent or national advertising costs that big chains do. Nor do we have the cost of paying employees. Therefore we can keep prices very competitive.

Will you answer a tax question if I am not yet your client?

Sure, and at NO COST. We have a several long-time clients from free consultations. Some probably knew the answer and wanted to test my knowledge (smile). That's okay.

You can give us a call or send an email. Hopefully you will understand that there is a limit to the number of questions we can answer if you are not a client.
